Product Description:

Straight blades meet toe-picks in this hilarious and heartfelt story about the attraction of opposites. After an accident at the Olympics cuts his professional career short, a handsome ice hockey player named Doug (D.B. Sweeney, EIGHT MEN OUT) is paired with Kate (Moira Kelly, WITH HONORS), a talented but bitter figure skater whose dreams were also dashed at the Olympics. Her prima donna attitude sends most prospective partners running, but the initial clash between Kate and Doug gives way to a feisty, ice-melting romance that could take them both to victory. Made up of equal parts old-fashioned rom-com and modern movie romance, THE CUTTING EDGE is a lively sports dramedy co-starring LOST's Terry O'Quinn. It's also an endearing early departure for versatile screenwriter Tony Gilroy (MICHAEL CLAYTON, THE BOURNE IDENTITY).

Product Description:

Moira Kelly (Dangerous Beauty, "The West Wing") and D. B. Sweeney (Roommates, Memphis Belle) star as polar opposites who unite on the ice for a shot at Olympic gold in this inspirational romantic comedy from acclaimed director Paul M. Glaser (The Running Man). Brimming with wit, charm and plenty of breathtaking sports action, The Cutting Edge is a real winner! She's a rich and refined pairs figure skater whose prima donna attitude has her skating solo. He's a brash, blue-collar hockey champion with a new injury and no future. With nothing in common but their dream of reaching the Olympics, Kate and Doug are each other's last resort. Reluctantly, they join forces, but its not long before the barbsand sparksstart flying as the unlikely pair skate towards the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance at a medal... and a chance at love.
